The vision is to demonstrate that it is possible to forecast major earthquakes days before they strike.
The objective of GeoCosmo is to establish and maintain ground stations, ground station networks, and satellite data streams to collect extremely diverse data and to use state-of-the-art Artificial intelligence to recognize patterns and trends.
Expected Results are to demonstrate the feasibility of actionable forecasts giving PLACE-DATE-MAGNITUDE of impending major earthquakes within reasonable limits (<200 km uncertainty, within a 1-3 days of the actual occurrence, and within 1 unit of magnitude on the Richter scale).
-GeoCosmo team discovered the science behind all precursors in NASA Goddard Space and NASA Ames laboratories
-Combines information available from satellites, both on geostationary and low-Earth orbits, with information available from regional ground station networks and other ground assets
-New technology is prepared for each ground station with specific and different sensors also including the Data Storage room, Back Office and Forecast bureau.
-GeoCosmo is ready to establish a pack of Early Warning Systems in any part of the world. Today’s new science is tomorrow’s new technology.
-Low investment with huge benefits!
BUDGET FOR ONE COUNTRY
GeoCosmo can start with 1.4 Million Euro with one country
The main country for a start-up can be Greece, Romania or Bulgaria in the EU
SAVE LIVES AND ECONOMIES WITH GEWS
THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, IN PARTICULAR THE EAST BAY, WILL EXPERIENCE WITHIN A FEW SHORT YEARS AN EARTHQUAKE OF AT LEAST MAGNITUDE 6.9 ACCORDING TO RICHARD HOLDEN, REGIONAL COMMISSIONER SAN FRANCISCO, US DEPARTMENT OF LABOR, MORE THAN $260 BILLION ARE AT RISK.
SAME RISK EXIST ALSO FOR İSTANBUL.
INTERRUPTION OF COMMERCIAL ACTIVITIES OF THOUSANDS OF COMPANIES IS EXPECTED, LASTING FOR SEVERAL MONTHS AND LEADING TO THE LAY--‐OFF OF TENS OF THOUSANDS OF EMPLOYEES.
TODAY, WE HAVE CLEAR EVIDENCE THAT PRECURSOR SIGNALS BECOME MEASURABLE DAYS, SOMETIMES WEEKS BEFORE MAJOR EARTHQUAKES.
THE DISCOVERY OF THE SCIENTIFIC BASIS FOR EXPLAINING EARTHQUAKE PRE--‐CURSORS HAS PROVIDED A SOLID FOUNDATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN OPERATIONAL, ACTIONABLE GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE WARNING SYSTEM.
GeoCosmo’s Global Earthquake Warning System (GEWS)
Combines information available from satellites, both on geostationary and low--‐Earth orbits, with information available from regional ground station networks and other ground assets.
GEWS will monitor the range of signals that the Earth produces when stresses build up deep below to dangerously high levels, heralding an increased probability of a major seismic event.
When fully implemented GEWS will provide an alert 1--‐3 days before any major earthquake
GEWS will be a powerful scientific tool to study subtle changes in the environment that can have a profound effect on human life.
GEWS is expected to save thousands of lives every year and billions of dollars by minimizing physical damage and other earthquake--‐related costs.
GEWS can be used for civilian, commercial and military situation awareness.
